At the Mercedes-Benz polygon

Bison concrete armoured lorry

The Bison was an improvised light armored vehicle, often referred to as a mobile machine gun nest. Bison was produced in Britain during the invasion crisis of 1940-1941. Based on the chassis of a number of different trucks, it was characterized by the fact that its combat section was protected by a layer of concrete. The bisons were used by the Royal Air Force (RAF) to protect the airports and also by members of the Home Guard. They were given the general name Bison after their main manufacturer.
